Browsing: search engine optimization

Editor's Choice

For professionals and business owners, time is scarce, yet it should be clear by now that blogging offers such a strong return that it should not be ignored. So what’s the solution? How is it possible for a busy professional to work blogging into an already crazy schedule? Here are a few tips:

Tip one: Just post once or twice a week

It’s been said that posting every day is great for search rankings. It’s true that more is better if you’re shooting for the best search rankings possible. However, search rankings are only one of many ways to benefit from blogging. And not posting every day does not detract from any of those other benefits. It also does not remove all search ranking benefits. Many, many successful bloggers only post once or twice a week. Post every day if you like and can maintain that type of schedule. However, don’t think about it in black and white. If you can only post once a week or so, there is still a lot of good you can do with a blog. Not being able to post something new every day is not a reason to not start a blog for your business.

You’ve probably heard about how having lots of backlinks can give you a huge advantage over your competition on the internet, right?  You’ve probably heard that commenting on blogs, forums and social media sites can give you some really good “Google link juice.”

But do you know how to utilize this strategy effectively?  If not, then you are in for a treat.

In today’s post, I am going to talk about SEO.  Now, I realize that search engine optimization is not for everyone and can be a long, enduring, tedious and hard work.  Yes, I said work.  SEO constantly changes, especially because of our friends over at Google.  They like to keep us on our toes.  Every once in a while, they’ll change their algorithm and if you are not playing the SEO game the right way and doing some blackhat stuff, your site will most likely drop in the rankings.

But that’s a whole other discussion.  Today I want to tell you about a strategy that will help you rank high in Google.  Now, since you are already using the internet, and going to different blogs, forums and social media sites, you should utilize this strategy for your business. Newbies to blogging can learn from these 77 mistakes new bloggers make.

In this post, I am going to focus on blog commenting.  Let’s get right into it.  First, you need to follow couple of common sense rules.

Earlier today I was browsing through some of the blogs on our BiggerPockets Blog Network and saw a post that caught my attention. It didn’t grab me as much for the content, but because the author shared with everyone the fact that the post had first page rankings on Google, soon after going live.

The post, titled I Buy Houses in Joplin Missouri, written two days ago, is now the top result for “buy houses Joplin” and the second result for “buy houses Joplin Missouri” out of 107,000 and 110,000 total results in Google’s index.

I first learned this little tip from a guy named Frank Kern.  He is one of the brightest people on the internet and he knows exactly what is going on when it comes to internet marketing.  When people go to Google, they do so with the intention of accomplishing a particular task.

The Search Mentality

They type in  and receive this little search window that asks them what they want to search for. Some people go there just to waste time; some people go there to just browse around; some people go to do research; some go there to find some kind of a free topic on blogs or forums or whatever the case may be; some people actually go there to find specific solutions for their problems—it’s all about the mindset that they have.
